Here at the Indo Board Office, our office manager, Kelly, is also a certified personal trainer! When she has a few free minutes, she shows the staff a few quick exercises you can do with the Indo FLO. Who knew you could get an awesome upper body workout with an Indo Board? Kelly loves to use the Indo Board Balance Trainer in her workouts.
Today she showed us two quick and easy upper body exercises you could do with your Indo FLO.
Place your palms on the Indo Board like you are about to a push up. Extend your legs out and find your center. Then rotate your hips from side to side. Do this 15 times. If you are a little more advanced, try balancing on one hand like in picture 2.
Try completing this exercise a few times a day in your free time!
Kelly also showed us how to use a resistance bar to help with an upper body workout on the Indo FLO.
You can use a resistance bar, a regular weighted bar or some barbells and try to do 15 bicep curls. Try to not touch the ground while you are doing the bicep curls on the Indo FLO. Also try to look ahead and not down at the board so your head, shoulders and hips are in alignment.
You can easily do both exercises while watching TV or if you have your Indo FLO in your office. Both of these are quick and easy. You can fit in a short workout whenever you have a free minute!
Indo Board Man had his family over to celebrate Christmas day. During the festivities, Indo Board Man was training the next generation in the ways of the Balance Board. The earlier the better to get started with learning to adapt to standing on an unstable balance board. You can see the two hand hold approach works best at this very early stage of balance training.
After a delicious dinner, Indo Board Man and his two year old grandson, also named Hunter, were showing off their balance board skills on the Indo Board Original Natural. This is also a great addition to your balance workout…add a 30 lb toddler and test your skills!
Indo Board Man has great hopes getting his grandson in the water surfing with him as he grows up. He dreams of Hunter following in his footsteps and able to become skillful at riding waves. There is no better way to start the process than introducing Hunter to the Indo Board!
We hope you are also able to make the Indo Board Balance Board a fun family activity!

Super-model, actor, author, mom, and simply the all-around intelligent and amazing woman, Brooke Shields’ interview with Health.com shares her secrets – and it’s all about balance.
“Do you have a favorite move that changed your body?
I’ve just started hanging upside down in inversion boots, doing hamstring pulls and sit-ups. I’m amazed at how great it feels on my back. I’ll just hang there and then start doing a whole series of crunches and things like that. It’s really hard, but it’s really great, and I notice a difference. And balance—I never put too much into balance because I danced, and it was fine, but now they have this balance board, you know the Indo Board? And now I can do it. Six months ago, I couldn’t. And I thought to myself, “I’m so strong. Why?” And [my trainer] said, “Everything’s not firing. You’ve really got to just ignite and wake up certain little muscles…”
